Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Will not stay again Will not stay here again. This was a repeat visit and thought we would give hotel second chance. It was just as bad as the first time. October 16, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great location Clean rooms, good breakfast buffet, and very friendly staff. Also a great location right near downtown Traverse City. October 14, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by nice enjoyed it, nice hotel overall, good food and good deals early in the week. Slowest elevators in the world, but what can you do. October 10, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great stay in September We stayed for 5 nights at the end of September. Hotel location is fantastic, walking distance to town, on the beach. Staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Patio bar area is great, with views over the bay, and had great entertainment while we were there. Also helped that it was warm and sunny! Some areas could do with a little updating, and the breakfast buffet wasn't appealing - ordering off the menu was much better. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay, and would return here without hesitation. October 8, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very pleasant stay I was at this facility for a meeting for a couple days and the staff was wonderful. Moved me to a more accessible room with no questions. Provided my preferences in the bar area and the recommendation for dinner by the concierge was welcome. I look forward to staying there again. October 8, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by An Anniversary Night that could have been better To start off, we had trouble to find a parking spot in the lot, we had to wait almost a HALF hour just to check in when we showed up because there was only one poor gal working. The entry way was clean but the elevators and hallways were not so much. We elected to purchase the hotel breakfast when we booked. There was a half hour wait because it was so full. So a manager offered for us to go to the small restaurant. This was a bad choice. The service couldn't had been any slower but the food was still good. We came to Traverse City for our anniversary and we made the best of it but Holiday Inn let me down. Typically I have had success with your hotel chains. October 8, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Front Desk Staff is Fabulous! Every time I check in they are so friendly! Recently I locked my keys in my car and they were so helpful. They sent me down to the day club and Caitlin was the best restaurant. October 7, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Location Beautiful view of West Grand Traverse Bay. Easy to walk to town, or along the waterfront. Only complaint, is that only one elevator seemed to be working, and it was very slow..... Otherwise I hope we will be visiting again. October 7, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Location This was a weekday, one night visit while traveling on vacation. Great waterfront location. Our room was recently renovated, very comfortable. October 6, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great place for a little "get away" We decided last minute to take a little vacation for ourselves. We stumbled onto this resort by pure luck and was happy to hear that they had just a couple of rooms left. We were pleasantly surprised at the atmosphere and friendliness of the staff. The concierge helped us to find some great local places to eat and some fun activities to do. When we weren't running and playing, the resort offered some great music, a comfortable bar, and a nice clean little beach to relax at. Overall, great place to stay. October 5, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Location WE spent a week in Traverse City for fun and this hotel was the perfect location. 5 min.walking distance to downtown and close to all the local attractions. The only problem they have that can't be changed is when exiting the hotel to the street, it is very busy and can take a bit of time to get out. The city needs to adjust the timing of the 2 lights on either side of the exit. Other than that it's right on the water and the rooms are quiet and updated. October 5, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Holiday Inn Resort West Bay Beach Location and beach are fabulous. Hotel is showing it's age. Needs updating. October 5, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dog Friendly! It was nice to have a nice room with a view of the bay and have our dogs stay with us. There were a lot of people there with dogs. October 2, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by nice hotel to stay Great location to the downtown area, clean lobby and guest room. Enjoyed the variety of restaurants and menu selections. I really like the outside area to sit and lounge. September 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Staff Our soccer team stayed here for the TBays soccer tourney. The staff was very accommodating. Special thanks goes to Michael from the kitchen staff and Zach from the setup staff. They helped us quickly set up a room for our team craft and meal. They went above and beyond!!! The location was perfect - close to downtown and not far from the fields. September 22, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Great service staff The staff here are wonderful. However, the cleanliness of the room is much to be desired. If you have a pet, know you will be in a "pet room" - certainly not as spiffy as other rooms. Feels like if you are a pet parent, you don't matter as much. September 22, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Housekeeping I left my earrings in bathroom and Sandy had them sent to me within days of our stay! Much appreciated. (Thought room was too expensive, especially because we were there for a wedding and thought we should have gotten a price break,but all service people we encountered throughout our stay were excellent) September 19, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by vacation Location very convenient to downtown area. Great location as far as being right on beach. Wait staff not trained well or inexperienced. Room cleanliness great. Common areas needs improvement with cleanliness. Carpeting worn out in lobby. Buffet ok but charges for extras like toast to go with your eggs on the buffet. Drinks extra. Menu items high priced if ordering off menu. Don't know if I would stay again based on wait staff. Front desk does not seem to be real concerned with any problems. September 17, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very Clean rooms My room was very clean and the bed was comfortable. The food was excellent. Highly recommend staying here. September 16, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by convenience we love staying here because we have everything we need right here at the hotel. It is a walking distance to downtown, and also right on the beach. The beach by the patio needs to be spruced up. The grassy area could use a couple of tables, lounge chairs during the day. You need recycle bins for papers and plastic September 16, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Deck Area with Entertainment Beautiful View. Large Deck with great entertainment. Right on the Water. September 16, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Traverse City Hotel Staff was excellent from check in to bar service. Rooms were updated and clean. Loved the outdoor bar on the waterfront. Walking distance to downtown Traverse City made it convenient to shop and eat in downtown Traverse City. September 14, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Location/Nice Room This is an older hotel, but has been well maintained. Room I had was nicely decorated and comfortable, but like many older hotels was not as soundproof as many newer buildings. Location was great--right on the beach, and very near a great downtown area. I was here on business...wish I could have stayed longer. September 13, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great location, friendly, helpful staff The location on the beach and walking distance to downtown September 9, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Wonderful staff The staff is first rate. Very nice and ready to assist at any time. I had an issue with my television and within 20 minutes a staff member had the issue fixed. September 8, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dog Friendly This is one of very few dog friendly resorts in the area. We especially enjoy staying here for that reason. September 8, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome Stay Terrific hotel right on Lake Michigan. Great staff, great hotel, great restaurant and food. Awesome live band!! A fun hotel!! September 7, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by At the lake. Nice small beach in front of the hotel. We can go to downtown by foot. September 5, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Great location but hotel seems dirty. Dirty carpets, stale smoke smell in guest rooms and hallways, trash left to sit in the hall for 2 days, Mattress felt old and tired. Carpet in the elevator was really dirty and a bad first impression. September 5, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Location! Perfect location right by downtown. Only hotel near downtown on the beach! Had an outdoor and indoor pool along with beach. Outdoor nightclub was fun! September 4, 2014
